A woman died in a devastating early morning fire on Monday in East Flatbush.
The massive inferno broke out at 738 E. 52 St., on the corner of Avenue D, at around 3:10 a.m. and sent dozens of FDNY personnel rushing to the scene.
When first responders arrived, they were met by heavy fire and smoke coming from a second floor apartment.
The blaze took 12 FDNY units and 60 members to subdue, according to a Fire Department spokesperson.
During their efforts to quash the fire, first responders found a woman unconscious and unresponsive inside a residence.
Emergency Medical Services tended to the victim, but ultimately pronounced her dead at the scene.
The woman’s identity has not yet been released, pending proper family notification.
